Ouch! While we’re fairly familiar with rumors we report on being debunked by spokespersons, PR representatives, and the like, there’s something different about it coming from one of the most respected Googlers on the Android side of the old ‘plex.
Dan Morrill was a little more than fed up with whoever started the rumor about “Android 3.0 (Gingerbread)” the other day. He was so upset that he took it straight to Twitter (in case you didn’t know, Twitter rants are pretty hardcore) to call them out directly. Choice quotes? Don’t mind if I do.
I love it when people just make stuff up and report it as news. http://goo.gl/cwbf
@Adontai You shouldn’t believe everything you read, no.
In summary, please remember that rumors are not official announcements. ;)

Alright, so perhaps he wasn’t THAT stern, but you get his point: it’s not true. Of course, that really doesn’t tell us anything. Even though these rumors did appear to come out of nowhere and sounded pretty out of this world, Morrill could just be trying to throw sand into a flame that wasn’t ready to be lit yet. Just sayin’. For now, we’ll take his word for it (because, well, he’s just that awesome).
